Cover32 Grade Day: How did the Patriots offense do against the Washington Redskins? | Cover32

The win over Washington was notable for the continuing run of injuries which tests the depth of the New England Patriots offense. Starting running back Dion Lewis was lost for the season to a knee injury and left tackle Sebastian Vollmer was lost to a head injury (presumably a concussion per reports) during the game. Without Vollmer’s strong pass blocking and Lewis, the Patriots turned to a retro 2003/2004 look with a run-heavy and quick-pass offense and shut down Washington with an attacking, aggressive defense.

The New England Patriots offense had another strong game against Washington, but how good did they really do? As we do each week at Cover32.com, here are the grades for each position group on offense from the New England win. Check out the grades to find out:
